Jefferson Park - Oregon
This season I’ve been avoiding the popular hikes, favoring solitude over jaw dropping beauty, but Jefferson Park is one hike that I’ll make an exception for just because it’s so damn beautiful. It’s stupid busy on the weekends and if you want a camp site, you’ve gotta get up there early, but the reward is a high plateau dotted with alpine lakes, green meadows, and lots of gnarly little krummholz trees, all with Oregon’s second highest volcano towering over you.
Literally, ignore them.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space. "
